Few artists can say that their demand is so huge in the States that they can make their fans travel overseas just to spend a few hundred dollars less to witness their presence. According to many fans online, people are buying tickets for Beyoncé's shows in Europe due to staggeringly high ticket prices in the U.S. Moreover, the star singer's European leg begins in Stockholm, Sweden on May 10, according to her official tour website. However, many of these shows already sold out on the platform, so maybe fans got cheaper resale tickets.

Of course, Beyoncé's highly acclaimed 2022 album RENAISSANCE, plus her sheer dominance and legacy as an artist, drove millions to buy tickets. What it resulted in is a frenzy of delayed purchase times, crashing websites, insane demand, and insane prices. It's not entirely uncommon for the biggest artists in the world to face these issues, whether thanks to poor planning or just the fact that they're so huge that everyone and their grandpa want to go. For example, Taylor Swift faced similar issues, as did Drake whose tour tickets rivaled even the "CUFF IT" star's.

Beyoncé Fans Face High Ticket Prices In The U.S., Travel To Europe For Shows

However, many on social media ultimately saw this as a great opportunity to go visit other countries. After outlets started to report on the phenomenon, many chimed in with their takes. "It's still cheaper than the US!!" one user claimed. "We were able to make a cute lil vacation in Toronto!! I'm excited that this is pushing black and brown folks to travel abroad for new and different experiences!!" Another expressed, "If I wouldn’t have gotten my ticket here… oooo oui! I would’ve been on my way to Paris."

It might be an unorthodox move, but it's something to consider if you want to see a large artist on a world tour and can spend a lot of money, but not a lot of money. Meanwhile, the 41-year-old is enjoying a victory lap of sorts after becoming the most awarded Grammys artist ever. Now, she's looking forward to her massive tour- and many fans are looking forward to their overseas vacations. Regardless, come back to HNHH for the latest news and updates on Beyoncé.
